We were looking for an easy getaway cruise for a birthday celebration and living close to Tampa this fit our needs. Did not know what to expect because we know that Tampa does not get ships from the cream of the crop. The ship was a little dated but very clean and the condition exceeded my expectations. I thought the main dining room was only average and the specialty restaurants were good but not great. The exception was the Chef's Table which was fantastic. It was well worth the price with great food, plenty of wine, and a brief description of each of the 5 courses by the Chef. It was the perfect birthday dinner. Entertainment was ok and the production shows also exceeded my expectations. We had been to all the ports before with the exception of Costa Maya. This port was a tourist trap designed by the cruise industry and simply a place to stop in my opinion. On our port visit there were 2 of the mega ships so a total of 12,000 cruise passengers which totally overpowered the place. No room to walk much less spend anytime in the shops. We got back to the ship as quickly as possible and would never spend a minute in the place again. The only recommendation is to plan ahead and take a taxi to another part of the port and get away from the pier area. Read Less

The ship itself is very confusing. Theater aft, dining forward. I was always lost. Our interior cabin was comfortable and we had plenty of room. Lots of closet space and drawers. Entree choices were blah. Starters and desserts were fabulous. I had the refreshment package. Premium bottled water was no name purified via reverse osmosis. Yuck. No Starbucks. Coffee stand with very limited choices but their cookies and donuts were very good. I had a hard time getting a “mocktail” at first. Ronaldo brought me luscious virgin mojitos. The entertainment was top notch. The Productions shows were very nice. New looking costumes. The comedians were hilarious!!! We didn’t like the Celine Dion tribute, she hardly sang any Celine songs? She was a good singer though. The Adult Quest game was an absolute riot! I haven’t laughed that hard in a lot no, love no time. I think I’ll stick to larger ships. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we had gone on this 2 years ago and loved it. All in all it is a wonderful cruise, but this time around we brought more friends and kids. The Kids Club was great for the young ones, but only our two teens (13 years old) showed up to Teen Club and that is not enough to do anything that is planned for the teens. I did give the manager ideas on how to promote and maybe even update the arcade for the teens, but there really wasn't anything for our kids to do at night. The Teen Club said they could come up, but it is hard to do any activity with just two of them. There were 11 teens on this cruise, but Teen Club was never promoted at poolside to get the kids motivated. I even had to move the barrier so they could play ping pong one evening. The movies played on deck at night were really not kid appropriate and would have liked to have seen something geared to them somewhere on the ship and even have popcorn. The late night snacks were not all desirable and eating hot dogs and pizza every night for snacks got a little old on about day 3. I was a little disappointed by the change in some shore excursions especially the H2O snorkeling in Belize was changed to another company and I was very disappointed. There were too many people, the water was too rough where we were taken in the Reef, and we didn't get to see anything but coral and a couple fish. All in all we had a great time with friends and family and the service is impeccable as always, but the minor details about the teens and shore excursion were my biggest complaints. I will not be going on the Rhapsody again as I feel my kids have outgrown this ship after this vacation. We need something where all family members have something to do at any given time. Read Less
